NBC took a bite out of Hannibal last week when, at the request of show creator Bryan Fuller, the network decided to pull Episode 4 from its schedule because of content that Fuller deemed insensitive in the wake of tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon and in Newtown, Connecticut. The episode, "Ceuf," was originally scheduled to air tonight, but NBC will jump straight into Episode 5 instead.
Some questions that might be on your mind: But what about continuity? How will I know what's going on? What's the dealarooni, Buster Brown? Well, both Fuller and NBC insist that continuity won't be an issue, but admit that the episode contains some important character developments, particularly between Hannibal and Abigail.
To make sure viewers are able to keep up with the series, NBC and Fuller have turned "Ceuf" into a six-part web series highlighting the important stuff that you can't miss. And they're all available now! So eat 'em up before you tune in tonight.
Hannibal Episode 5 airs tonight at 10pm on NBC.
